While we might offer all sorts of rewards over time, for now, you can choose to get rewarded for the tasks you complete with cash on either PayPal or Steam. Rewards net value may vary from $5 for simple tasks to $40 for winning testing challenges, the average is $10 per task.
Nope, it’s all about your ability to complete tasks - The more tasks you complete, the more rewards you’ll get. Keep in mind that tasks are handed out by our team members and valuable feedback which you provide can easily lead to new tasks and other opportunities!
Provide meaningful feedback, discuss with developers in the appropriate channels, find bugs and suggest new ideas while completing tasks and filling out our post-game forms. For every task you successfully complete, you will get rewarded based on the value assigned to each task.
The value of each task is estimated by its complexity and time requirement. For example, a task that involves playing a single match of Fortnite and checking one app won’t have the same value as testing that app in 5 matches across different game modes.
The first step is applying to our Community Alphas program, to do so just fill out this form and complete the short task in it. The link to join our Discord server (where we post & discuss tasks) is also in the form. Upon joining, you won't be able to see all the channels, allow us a week to review your application. If you got in, you will be granted a permanent team role and the other channels will reveal to you, otherwise, better luck next time we recruit.
After joining our Discord and whenever we have new tasks for you, you will get a prompt in Discord sending you to the Alphas’ website, where you will find a full description of the task at hand as well as a link to the post-game form. After understanding your mission, it’s time to dive into your game and perform the task described. Once done, fill out the post-game form and submit it to us, we will review the forms and reward you once the task is over.
Yes, each task has to be completed within a specific time frame corresponding to the complexity of the task. Simple tasks will be limited to a couple of days while some complex ones will have over a week to complete.
We’re open to gamers originating from all around the world, but do have some basic requirements:
- Be fluent in English
- Own a mid to high-end gaming PC
- Use and have some experience with Discord
- Have Overwolf installed (and an Overwolf account)
- A dedicated, experienced player of one of the program’s chosen games
